Belly buttons!

(13 Posts)

Am 29wks with baby 2 and my belly button hasn't quite popped out yet! It's nearly there but I'm sure with DS it was well and truly popped by now.
I'm not moaning because I have real ishoos with belly buttons - I'm just surprised as I thought it would have popped out sooner rather than later 2nd time around.
Anyone else got a shy one this time?!

My belly button never popped out at all. Was rather pleased.

Really? Maybe mine won't this time. I would be very pleased!

mine never did - thank god! i hate belly bittons and got quite worried about blush

I hate belly buttons too but mine has well and truly popped and looks like a nose on my belly (even with clothes on).

I am 36+2 and mine has decided, today, to pop. Just as, today, my tummy has decided to explode into stretch-mark central. Great!!

hmm
this time I am livign in over-bump trous as it is chilly (dd was a summer baby) so any popping it has done isn't as noticeable as last time.

I will confess to taping it down a couple of times to decrease visibility under otherwise flatteringly clingy party dresses...

Mine only popped in two of my four pregnancies. (2 and 3) I guessed at the time that it was because of the baby's position but now I am not so convinced as 1 and 3 were OP for the latter stages.

I don't think that I had an "outie" before about week 35 though...

I was very pleased when it didn't happen with #4 as I had assumed that it would. No stretch marks with any thus far so I am not sure how that is all related either...

My belly button is very much in @ 31 weeks. I am reassured to hear that it doesn't always.

Mine's on the cusp of popping out (29+6). I am not a fan of belly buttons and I am convinced that I can feel pain around the belly button so keep on pinching it together. I don't want it to pop but perhaps it will feel less strained when it does pop?!!

I think I spoke too soon and it's now begining to pop out.
Bump is much lower this time so it's not as obvious, which is something I guess!

If you want to really really freak people out, tell them you are going to get your 'outie' pierced when it pops out. The retired women who volunteer while I worked nearly threw up when I said this. grin grin

I was, of course, only joking

Mine is half in and half out(one sine in the other side out)!! Wish it would either pop out totally or go back in!!!
